Lightswitch tutorial: Unable to locate "OData Service" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am following the Working with Data in LightSwitch (Guided Tour) at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff851982.aspx, and at the "Connecting to Data" portion I am unable to choose "OData Service" in the Attach Data Source wizard. It just doesn't appear. See attached. What do need I to do to get "OData Service" to appear, so I can choose it? Thank you! - tom

    No OData Service option

  • Hi Tom,

    I'm guessing that you are using LightSwitch 2011? OData support was added in LightSwitch for Visual Studio 2012.

    The LightSwitch 2011 version of the topic here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff851982(v=vs.100).aspx uses a SQL database instead.

    Hope this helps,
